Dell’s Latitude Z is a Truly Portable 16-inch Laptop

by Suzanne Kantra on September 29, 2009

Dell Latitude ZThe sleek 16-inch Latitude Z is a showpiece with a soft-touch, black-cherry finish that subtly changes color as it moves. What will make your eyes pop, though, is the fact that it measures a mere 0.5-inches think in front and tapers up to 0.7 inches in the back, making the Latitude Z the world’s thinnest 16-inch laptop.

Dell Latitude Z keyboardLaptops with 16-inch displays are usually lumped into the desktop replacement category, due to their fast processors, heavy weight and short battery life. Dell’s 16-inch Latitude Z series, however, easily fits into the thin-and-light group, with a carrying weight of 4.5 pounds, a mainstream Intel Core 2 Duo processor and a 4-hour battery. And the chicklet-style keyboard is backlit for easy visibility in dim environments.

Dell Latitude Z power buttonsWhen you open the Latitude Z, you’ll find two power buttons. The extra button is for "Latitude ON", a technology that enables a second, Linux-based operating system and processor to boot within seconds for instant access to email, calendar, contacts and web browsing applications.
